    Got our first real snow today. True to tradition, it will be cold for Halloween. Seems to happen every year. So I guess the Little Berserker will be trick-or-treating at the mall and college dorm. And I am sure lots of hot cocoa will be needed when we get home.

    OT: the neighborhood deer kicked the crap out of our jack o' lantern and ate it.

    But if any Texans read this, all the snow went to Utah. Please take your winter ski vacation there.

    Just remember that I was able to ski 2 feet of new snow in September this year. What were you doing on the 29th of September? We are a little bit drier than normal, but we managed to get a very early morning trip up at Alta last Thursday. So, 2 days down this year so far. (long range charts indicate winter will be here next week)

    And Texans don't come to Utah, we don't have real beer.

    Dammit. Send them to Oregon then...

    Actually, I saw a photo from the BYU game and there seems to be a fair amount of snow in Provo.

    Anyways, good snow here but still only a light dusting at my place (A.K.A. the rain shadow of the rainshadow).

    A tornado hit just after 6 last evening in the southeast part of our county and the north part of an adjacent county. A number of homes damaged or destroyed, as well as several apartment complexes. We'll have to send someone out this morning to assess damage to our trail which was in the path.

    Everyone affected said they were so surprised. Why don't these people have weather alert radios? I heard about the storm and its path at least 15 minutes before it hit, thanks to my alert radio.

    Our region is under a tornado watch until 9:00 pm and severe thunderstorms west of us are heading our way. It's going to be nasty here the next few hours.

    ^^ It's coming this way, but good thing, it's breaking up a bit. Tornadoes, flooding, etc that have been a factor in your area and west of you, should not be that bad here.

    Brrr.... in the '30's tonight, and frost, in central Florida. I'm in my sweatpants, big flannel shirt, and slippers from RJ's mom. Better go throw another blanket over the kid. I don't have to turn the heat up so high this year, since our bird expired this year.

    The next week will be brutal... highs around -2F with a windchill of -24F.

    It's too early yet... I can't take four or five more months of this! On the upside, my mom and dad were mouthing off the last time they were here for Christmas about how it wasn't that cold (wasn't below freezing that xmas). They'll be in for a surprise this time!

    Report From NW Ohio/SE Michigan

    The usual interesting weather here in NW OH and SE MI, on this Saturday after Thanksgiving, 2006.....

    "If you don't like the weather here.....stick around.....it will change in a few minutes."

    Yes, the trials and tribulations of forecasting weather in the Great Lakes. So many influences on day-to-day weather. One thing you can count on.....clouds. The Great Lakes areas are notoriously-cloudy during the Autumn and Winter.

    Yesterday we had some serious ice fog, creating horrible driving conditions. Not so bad this morning. And we expect to get up to 60-degrees F today and tomorrow.

    Time to get out in the yard and change the arrangement of the multiple cars and trucks on blocks, add to the already 14-foot high pile of rubble, feed the pet pigs and donkeys, make sure the anti-Stan trip wire is "set", and continue to build the NASCAR memorial by using the Bud Lite bottles and cans.

    The forecast for later in the week? Highs in the low 30F range with snow. This place will soon feel like Orlando.

    Haha, Bear, we're almost back to normal. Going to have a high of 75 d. today! If the wind dies down, I might even get in a little tanning this weekend!

    Snowy and frozen landscape here on the high plains of Colorado. Nice and cold this morning as I filled the tank of the Fiance's car. My drive into work brought a beautiful white landscape. Sunny and clear in some spots, a patch of very dense fog in others. It was a good morning.

    -4 degrees when I left the house, a high temp of around 18 today!

    I love the Weather in Michigan... as of an hour ago, Ironwood Michigan was at 7 degrees, and Detroit was at 57.

    It was in the high 60’s here yesterday, and has been raining almost non-stop as the temperature continues to drop like a rock. To make matters interesting for tomorrows commute, all this rain will turn to freezing rain, then to snow. They are saying that we could get a foot of accumulation by early to mid afternoon tomorrow.

    As if that was not good enough, my mom and sister are on their way down from the UP to go dress shopping this weekend with the Fiancée. But most of the weather issues won’t be an issue until mid way through the Lower Peninsula.

    Only silver lining of this storm is that the ground is not frozen, so the freezing rain will melt after it hits the ground and soak in before it re-freezes. By the time it gets cold enough the snow will have started.

    I am always amazed by the thermodynamic properties of Michigan.

    In the last two days, we've already recorded over 2 inches of rain in Peoria. We had about 1/4 of ice this morning. And we are expecting 10-14 inches of snow by noon Friday.

    And to think.. it was 65 or warmer here for the previous 6 days.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    It was 70 when I left the office yesterday, dropped to around 64 in the early evening. As I went to pick up the ex (about 7 mile east) the temp went back up to 73 degrees, as I pulled back into St. Charles the temp had already dropped to 60 (this is an 8 mile span) and by 9:00 p.m. we were in the low 40's...rain thismorning, turning to ice as I came into the office, expecting 4-8 inches of snow by tommorrow morning...kids are excited, I am NOT excited about the drive home. People in STL don't see snow THAT much and traffice turns into a NIGHTMARE when there is even an inch on the ground.
    People around here act like they are going to be snowed in for a friggin month. They stock up on milk, bread, etc...heeelllloooo you live in the suburbs, there are grocery stores and convenience stores on every friggin corner! I am starting to think the weatherman and the local groceries have some marketing scheme going!!

    Hah...I have an ortho appt at 3pm this afternoon, so I get to leave work at 2pm and hopefully miss the snow/evening commute mix.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Looks like Jax' snow is going to stay to the north and west of us. They are forecasting the possibility for severe storms about 7-8pm, then the arrival of the cold front and perhaps a few flurries.

    There has been a run on the markets for bread, milk and etc, however.

    Rain rain, go away. Come again another day.

    Man, here's the end of November, the second straight months of too much rain.

    Has Central Canada become a new England or what? I suppose I should be happy that it's not snowy as I'm having to do a lot of driving these days.

    Is it possible that all this rain is having a negative impact on people? People seem much more grouchy, touchy, and icky today and on other dark rainy days.
